Searching the Accession Number Field

The accession number is a unique identifying number associated with each record in the product. It consists of a product identification code, a product year, and an item number.

Always join multiple numbers by the OR Boolean operator. Do not use AND, NOT, NEAR, and SAME when searching for accession numbers because the  product will return an error message.

Enter a unique accession number to find a specific record. For example, WOS:A1991FV12500042 finds the record that is associated with this unique accession number.

Enter a partial accession number and include an asterisk (*) wildcard at the end. For example, WOS:0002929129* finds all records that begin with this accession number, such as:

  • WOS:000292912900001
  • WOS:000292912900002
  • WOS:000292912900036
  • And so on ... 

Note: You do not have to enter the product's initials (WOS) in your search query. For example, A1991FV12500042 finds the same unique record that WOS:A1991FV12500042 finds.
